Other that the announcement that came out a week or two ago, I haven't seen anything else on them.

I'd love to see the SX2s in a softer compound. I mean, all they've said are they are grooved, which.... big whoop, I can groove tires in a couple hours. But if its a softer compound, that'd be nice. Or if they do the production stickies like the 37" Trxus and 42" iroks....

I have been waiting quite a while to get an SX bigger than the 38.5. I guess I can wait a few more months if the rumors are true. How can you go wrong with a 42"or 43" SX?

The wait is over... Formal Announcement of the BIG SX

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both Dan and I have telling you to believe in the fact that this was happening.

I talked to David this morning and was given the go ahead to let you guys know what's happening.

Interco is releasing two brand new versions of its infamous SX tire line.

Both tires will be sold in 16.5, 17 and 20" rim sizes.

The SX2 will be a grooved version of the SX tread pattern and will be 42 x 15wide.

The SX will be still have its 14.5 footprint but be 43" tall


The SX2 line will also be available in all sizes down to 31" including a 40 x 13.5


The SX2 will be available sooner (late spring) with the SX following a month or so behind. Both tires will be DOT approved.

I'll have pics in a few days and one of the originals will be on display at the Offroad Impact Show in Anahiem in March.

Yeah, I noticed the sipes looked much like where many get grooved already, maybe interco was listening to the pictures they saw on the net during the design process.....

the grooves look like little kids designed them, and the side lugs are too shallow.

at least there is a new tire.

The grooves are pretty much where most people groove them anyway, and the side lugs are too shallow?

As in? Sidewall Lugs, or Side Lugs?

they are siped where most people groove them. I should have said siped in the beginning but I figured people would know what I ment.

the outer lugs are nice and deep, the sideWALL lugs dont look as aggressive as say a 38, it might be deceiving because that's a 20" rim and the tire is so big (it probably measures 40" :tonka:)

need to see the others to compare.

Thats my thought, the sidewall lugs are most likely the same, but given the 42" / 20" sizing, they look comparitively smaller.

Especially since the main lugs would have been sized up.

They need to snap a pic next to a 38.5 SX for comparison...

I gotcha, I figure the sipg was put there to make grooving easier in the future since that is where most people groove them anyway.

I agree the sidewall lugs look kinda shallow, but again like you mentioned comparitively they may not be too shallow. We'll wait and see.

Same thing happens when you look at a 54" bogger, the tread looks tiny, but its because its the same depth as the others, but the tire is 25% bigger...
